WHAT IS A CHAPEL GALLERY™
A Chapel Gallery™ is a ministry in the marketplace.
A Chapel Gallery™ is a retail art gallery, selling original art and reproductions. Our reproductions are used for specific missions and humanitarian relief efforts, serving the ongoing needs of underdeveloped nations as well as other local mission targets.
The entry area of the Gallery is a retail gallery, with moveable, saleable art. A chapel section is deeper in the interior, and may be divided from the store by windowed walls and doors. The chapel’s interior walls are painted and designed by artists who desire hands-on experience in designing of church interiors. In short, the Chapel interior is designed to be its own exhibit. It can change seasonally with the Church calendar, such as the Advent and Lent seasons before Christmas and Easter.
The old cathedrals and churches of Europe are exhibitions unto themselves. The appearance of the Gallery is intended to draw people in from the street because of the sheer beauty and impact of the space itself. Gallery walks become outreach events.
Larger churches may desire a Chapel Gallery™ in their interiors the way many churches have bookstores. It provides a way to reach an important sphere of culture while beautifying an interior at the same time. A ministry for youth, a ministry for the future.
